I have a Dell PowerEdge 2950 that has a RAID 5 array that totals just under 5TB, during install of W2K3 I created a C: partition of 1.9TB and left the rest unpartitioned. Now that the systems up and running I want to make a D: partition from the remaining unallocated space but the option is grayed out. I know that windows can't boot from a partition larger than 2TB but I don't understand why I can't make a second partition from the remaining space.
